A Yorkshireman's adventures in the big Smoke

Misleading headline ?

Just a very quick blog regarding this item on BBC News business pages : Bank of England warns inflation will exceed 3%

– which was in turn trailed by an RSS feed reading Bank warns of further inflation

The article tells us that the Bank of England expect inflation to rise slightly above 3% in the coming weeks. They then expect that it will fall quickly again, below the official 2% target level – and that it could well remain at that level for several years.

Fine – good reporting BBC !

It might have sounded a little more positive – not to mention truthful – if the headline had read “Bank expect long term low inflation after brief rise”, with the RSS Summary possibly being – “Bank predicts low inflation for years”

Just saying.
